The Community College of Allegheny County is about students learning from dedicated faculty in a learning-centered environment. It’s about choice—more than 150 programs that lead to rewarding careers and great four-year colleges. It’s about convenience—four campuses, four centers, day, evening and weekend classes and hundreds of online courses. And it’s about a complete college experience—from academics and athletics, to more than 100 clubs and organizations, to tutoring, student support services and a college Honors program, to studying hard in one of CCAC’s Math Cafés or Learning Commons before taking it easy with friends in the student union—CCAC offers everything you could want and more.

Choice, flexibility, expert instruction and exceptional value—CCAC has it all. Maybe that’s why one out of every three adult residents in Allegheny County choose CCAC, and why you should too.
